About 70 years ago, Dorothy Burns was a teenager and made a good living waiting tables at Graystone Lodge, a popular dining spot for travelers along U.S. 1 in Bel Air. She would like to see business prosper again in Harford County's oldest dated building. Burns recalled white linen tablecloths, men in business suits and generous tips during the late 1930s.

- In the heart of this town on the old U.S. National Road in Western Maryland, a woman leans on the front desk of an 1890s-era hotel, her face a study in mixed emotions. Tina Storey loves her work as office manager of Failinger's Hotel Gunter, the grande dame of lodging in Frostburg with its polished oak staircase, Victorian settees and zillions of artifacts and displays that evoke the history of the so-called "Mountain Side of Maryland. " But she's still grieving the woman who revived the place.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:Name Withheld by Request, Laurel: I have been in the military for 22 years and am currently a first sergeant stationed at Fort Meade. It is true there are gays in the military. You can tell who they are. But they don't bother you. I have never been bothered by one.I will say one thing about gay soldiers: They are better groomed. They are more spit-and-polish. And, I think, they are more intellectual than the other soldiers.I was in the gulf war and some of the best soldiers were homosexuals.

On weekend visits to his parents' house in Bel Air, consultant Steven Bavett would round the bend on Business U.S. 1 outside town and find himself looking for the old stone house slouching by the road. Though forlorn and empty, it still caught his eye, and his imagination. One day as they drove past, he said to his wife, Anna Marie, wouldn't it be great if the old place went up for sale? The next week, it did. "What fueled it is the fact I fell in love," said Bavett, 40, of his decision to buy Graystone Lodge for $200,000 nearly three years ago. "It spoke so much to me: This is a place that's got to be saved."

For anyone who enjoys bike riding or hiking, the path along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is special. Riding there on a recent chilly spring morning, I see the Potomac River to my left, serene in some spots, roaring with foamy fury in others. To my right, the opaque emerald of the canal's sluggish water glints in the sun, chopped into segments by wooden locks. Mallards bob in groups and egrets take flight as joggers keep pace alongside their dogs. These days, enjoying the towpath doesn't have to mean heading home at dusk or even setting up a tent at a campground.

Tourism gains boosted Garrett County and the Deep Creek Lake area during the last fiscal year, the result of record accommodations sales for the county and a sharp increase in tourism sales tax revenue, according to the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce. Garrett County, roughly three hours from Baltimore by car, attracts visitors year-round with the state's largest freshwater lake, Deep Creek Lake, and its only ski resort. Tourism sales tax revenues for the county climbed more than 6 percent during the fiscal year that spanned July 2012 to June 2013, while tourism sales tax revenues for the state as a whole grew by less than 1 percent.  Nicole Christian, president and CEO of the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce, attributes much of the county's tourism growth to aggressive marketing strategies that span print, television, radio and online mediums, among others.

It was a punishing TV Sunday with the Ravens losing to the Steelers and CBS Sports giving us Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts as our broadcast team for the game. Some viewers couldn't even wait until the end of the game to vent. Here's one of my favorites. It comes from Pam in Reisterstown, and it hit the in-basket before halftime Sunday. I love the way it walks right up to a full-blown rant: My husband and I are so disenchanted with trying to watch NFL on CBS I have picked up my laptop right in the middle of the Ravens/Steelers game to see if I could find anywhere to vent.  I found your 10/7 article.
